The LA Diary #4: Hollywood & Santa Monica

At the Santa Monica pier, end of Route 66

Santa Monica beach

Melrose Trading Post, the weekly flea market at the corner of Fairfax and Melrose.

The Surly Goat, an awkward bar where we played awkward games with awkward people

The Beverly Laurel hotel, where we stayed for about a week (great beds, huuuge shower…)

Rodeo Drive….more boring than we thought actually! The area is only fun for two hours, as there’s also no possibility to buy anything of course.

The streets on the side of the busy roads in Hollywood are the best. You’re in the middle of a energetic city, and there’s just the most beautiful views when you look to your right or left! There’s the long streets filled with tall palm trees, and these, with beautiful lavender colored nature.

Fayette and Michael, Michael and Fayette

The only star I neccesarily needed to see, John’s. It feels kinda strange they all have one except for Paul though.
H&M top and cardigan / random cutoff jeans / vintage bag, boots and sunglasses

Los Angeles from the Hollywood Hills

Carl, my new best buddy

Fayette getting pierced….worst pain ever. Excuse me for my smile.

Fayette, Nawathip and me, on our last night together

And of course, our last supper at Robata Jinya in West Hollywood. Too much, but also too good to keep your hands, fingers and chopsticks off. Very much recommended if you like the Japanese cuisine, and like to order small portions of anything! Please give me more of that signature shrimp toast… Delicious!

So, this is the last post about Los Angeles, hope you like the pictures! Only one more post coming up, about our San Francisco trip!

    Definitely go to Wasteland at Melrose (also near the flea market). It offers great new brands, the best jewelry, good second-hand stuff, and lots of vintage! There’s also a lot of nice boutiques near Wasteland, so just check out the entire street ;)

    Have fun! x
